* ''WesternAnimation/TheOblongs''. The kids get rich selling a sugar-laden energy drink everyone loves. It's obvious the drink is a horrifically unhealthy mess, but it turns out to be much, much worse. They used discarded 'morphine bottles' from the local hospital for their containers; the remnants of the morphine is what the people really wanted.

* Renuyu in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' allowed anyone to look young again... but if you stop using it, you suffer horrible pain and deformity. When an overdose was applied to a particularly recalcitrant actor, he became Clayface.
** Your mileage may vary. Matt Hagen, the actor, was using the material to hide the injuries he sustained in an accident. It's up in the air how much of the his pain/deformity was caused by the original scars or related angst, and how much was directly caused by Renuyu

* {{Downplayed}} and played for laughs, then subverted in ''Literature/TheLaundrySeries''. Apparently Apple puts a low-level glamour on their products that makes people want to buy them. In ''The Fuller Memorandum'' Bob falls for it and buys an iPhone. [[spoiler:It ends up saving his life after his friend installs anti-monster apps on it without permission.]]

* A surprising number of people are convinced that the artificial sweetener aspartame, often used in diet soda, is extremely harmful, or going to control their minds, and that there is a massive conspiracy to cover this up. Though a certain percentage of the population may develop headache and/or upset stomach upon ingestion due to an inability to properly metabolize phenylalanine (one of the chemicals into which aspartame breaks down), fueling the conspiracy theories further. A study did prove that using too much increases cancer risk considerably, but bear in mind that the lethal dose was equivalent to a human drinking hundreds of cans of diet cola ''per day'', so one dose in a cup of coffee per day shouldn't be an issue for anyone.

Also, some studies suggest aspartame might make it harder to recover from depression or schizophrenia.

* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jamaican_ginger Jamaican Ginger]], better known as "Jake". A [[AllNaturalSnakeOil patent medicine]] made to get around prohibition laws, it used a similar looking but better tasting chemical to the ginger solids it was supposed to contain, since the government test was done by boiling off the liquid and weighing the residue. The problem was said chemical was later found to be a neurotoxin that lead to numbness and partial paralysis of the limbs ("jake leg") with prolonged consumption.

* In ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'', the Leviathans take over - among many other things - companies that produce corn syrup, which is in practically every kind of fast food. [[spoiler:They proceed to engineer the corn syrup so that it wipes out every other kind of monster, cures all major human diseases, and - oh wait - makes us docile enough to not notice we're being systematically killed and eaten on a worldwide scale. Dean's major concern, of course, is that he can't eat pie any more.]]
